About
Lefkara

Lefkara (Greek: Λεύκαρα) is a village on the island of Cyprus famous for its lace, known as lefkaritika in (Greek: λευκαρίτικα) and silver handicrafts. The village takes its name from the white of its silica and limestone: Lefkara is derived from a combination of the Greek words “lefka” (Greek: λευκά, Translation: white) and “ori” (Greek: όρη, Translation: mountains, hills).
It is located on the southern slopes of the Troödos Mountains in the Larnaca District of Cyprus, off the main Nicosia-Limassol highway. It features cobbled streets and picturesque architecture. The village is split into two administrative regions: upper and lower Lefkara (Greek: Πάνω & Κάτω Λεύκαρα) with around 1,100 inhabitants.
